Lake
“Swimming, Fishing, Tubing, Sightseeing or just plain old relaxing...Lake Otesgo is our little gem and best thing about Cooperstown in my opinion...over 200 ft deep glacial lake and gorgeous views everywhere, lots of wildlife including bald eagles & There is a public beach at 3 Mile Point, also swimming dock at Fairy Springs...rent a boat at Sam Smith's or inquire with your's truly (Scott) about getting a private tour or fishing charter on my pontoon boat.”
